Governor Abbott Vetoes SB 830

June 15, 2017 | Austin, Texas | Legislative | Legislative - Veto Statement

Pursuant to Article IV, Section 14, of the Texas Constitution, I, Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas, do hereby disapprove of and veto Senate Bill No. 830 as passed by the Eighty-Fifth Texas Legislature, Regular Session, because of the following objections: 

Senate Bill 830 imposes burdensome new regulatory and paperwork requirements on those who offer seller-financed mortgages.  This sort of regulation could increase the price and reduce the availability of these mortgages. 

Since the Eighty-Fifth Texas Legislature, Regular Session, by its adjournment has prevented the return of this bill, I am filing these objections in the office of the Secretary of State and giving notice thereof by this public proclamation according to the aforementioned constitutional provision. 

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have signed my name officially and caused the Seal of the State to be affixed hereto at Austin, this 15th day of June, 2017. 

 

GREG ABBOTT
Governor of Texas
